Pop Producer Zhao Drops Electric Single "Feeling Today"
Composer, producer, and the guy you can count on to get the party started, Kenny Zhao has spent the last few years teasing out neon singles and pulsing EPs. Raised in Atlanta and now based in Los Angeles, Zhao has fully embraced the buzzing LA hubbub, crafting an electrifying brand of synth-pop mimicking the dazzling, illuminated land of Los Angeles.
A few weeks ago, Zhao released “Feeling Today,” his first release of 2019 — one that suggests continued greatness to come. Hear what Zhao has to say about the new track below:
Much like his previous releases, “Feeling Today” twinkles and sparkles and buzzes with electric energy. Opening with a rapid-fire smattering of electronic beats plinking close together, “Feeling Today” quickly welcomes Zhao’s soft croon and breathy delivery. There’s an almost phantasmagoric feel to the introduction — it’s desperate and otherworldly, an eerie arrangement swelling behind such pretty vocals — but then we move into a funky 80s-inspired soundscape of thick percussive bursts and deep bass line throbs. As Zhao weaves throughout a sunny synth composition rich with foggy sparkles and soft snaps, his voice remains as cool, calm, and collected as we’ve come to know Zhao as. All the while, he sings a punchy plea for serenity, a sleek sonic exploration of cool-toned relief.
